Houston police released new information in a violent robbery and shooting at a construction site in the Sunnyside area.Four men were working on a new house on Woodward back on Friday, September 25, when two armed robbers wearing ski masks stormed in and told them to get on the ground. When the men didn't move fast enough, one of the gunmen fired one shot from his shotgun, hitting all four men and severely injuring them. Then the other gunman robbed the men.

"These are very dangerous suspects that we need to get off the street as soon as possible," said Sgt. Larry Dole with the HPD Robbery Division. "They severely injured these men who were just working to build a new home for people and to support their families."

Police released a sketch of the suspected shooter. Police say a third person was involved. He was driving the getaway car.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for any information called in to the 713-222-8477 (TIPS) hotline or submitted online at www.crime-stoppers.org that leads to the identification, arrest and charging of any suspect in this case. All tipsters remain anonymous.
